Default Brown Porter (adjusted)

Gents,

I brewed the recipe below and got a really high OG or what seemed like one to me anyway. 1.060 and an FG of 1.030.
I left it in the primary for 14 days but the last 6 days pretty much did nothing.

8 gallons boil water
8.5# Marris
1# Caramel
2# Chocolate
11 oz light brown sugar (30 min)
2 0z Willamette (60 min)
.5 oz Willamette (15 min)
Muntons yeast
90 min boil total
5.5 gallons in primary

Did I so something wrong to get such a high FG?

Cheers

Well, is the caramel malt a crystal malt? If so, then you have a little more than 20% of your grist as crystal malts which will give you a high FG. But 1.030 seems too high. I've never used the muntons yeast so I don't know what its attenuation is like. I would suggest dropping in a packet of nottingham and waiting another couple of weeks.

With that much chocolate and crystal I doubt the gravity will drop much more. I'd just leave it for a while longer just to be sure.

what were the mash temps? maybe a bit too low, thus less fermentable?

I think you meant too high. Lower temps = more fermentable.
